I really like 2/26/77

I don't know how the Estimated stacks up against those shows you mentioned though...

What are your top 10 shows so far?

So far...

1/22/68
6/24/70
5/26/72 (I may want to change this to 8/22/72 or 9/21/72)
11/11/73
6/23/74
9/28/75
10/14/94

I'd need something from '76-'78 and something from the early '80s.

Agree with Stratocaster about including 4/19/82--IMO the best Estimated ever, given that it's the only one that's ever reprised the main theme after the jam, plus Bobby's really into it...

...BUT if you want a top-shelf Estimated, that features Jerry totally zoned into the space-wahwah-jam vibe, AND one of the greatest (actually, THE greatest IMHO ;-) shows of all time, look no further than 10/29/77.

(Go for the Estimated, but make sure you stay for the EYES...not to mention the rest of the brilliant 2nd set.)

agree that 77-10-29 is greatest in a zen kinda way

however if you r looking for a long, spaced out rocker this is the 1 http://archive.org/details/gd81-10-12.sbd.macdonald.7916.sbeok.shnf

this is the longest version ever (as far as i know) and a part of 1 of the longest dead shows in the 80s

can't believe I forgot about that one, senior moment on my part, that estimated is awesome and the show is definitely top shelf, highly recommend...perhaps best estimated of 77
